Yes, more wedding pictures.
But, you see, we spent almost half of the month of July in Houston getting ready for the big day, so this is what you get.
Emily mentioned to me a while ago that she still needed to buy a unity candle. A light bulb went off. I still had our unity candle and it was in perfect shape.
Why? Because it was so windy at our wedding that we weren’t able to light it during the ceremony. (We lit it quickly after the ceremony for the sake of photos). I digress…
So, I offered to cart it across the country and for it to be the “something borrowed” in their wedding.
The time came for them to go over and light their unity candle, symbolizing the uniting of their families and them.
And, they tried and tried to light it. Even trying to dig the wick out of the wax. No luck. That stinker wouldn’t light.
They finally looked over at the minister and she gestured for them to walk back over to her.
Fortunately, they were good sports.
And, she had the perfect thing to say. “Fortunately, we are not a superstitious people, we are a faithful people.”
So, the candle that “failed” to work to unite us, failed Emily and David well. Thank goodness we don’t believe in a marriage based on a candle lighting.
